Barney Dougher  Hoya Vision Care
EYECARE INNOVATOR OF THE MONTH


Barney Dougher,
 President,
Hoya Vision Care
North America

How is HOYA an innovator?

HOYA is a global technology company and the leading supplier of innovative and indispensable high-tech products and services based upon its advanced optics technologies.

Since its establishment in 1941 as Japan’s first specialty manufacturer of optical glass, HOYA has diversified into new business areas that exploit the potential of advanced optics technologies. The company has continued to grow as a global enterprise through the expansion of its diverse business activities, which encompass Information Technologies, Eye care, Medical, and Imaging Systems. HOYA’s corporate mission is about the dedication to innovation.

How does the focus of innovation benefit the eye care industry?

Hoya focuses on developing and manufacturing the finest quality ophthalmic lenses and the most advanced coating techniques and lens designs available to correct ophthalmic imperfections. Combining state-of-the-art technology with extensive knowledge and experience, Hoya offers its customers the perfect solution for any type of correction or fashion trend, meeting any budget. Exciting developments occur frequently and the Hoya product range is expanding all the time.

Our motto is “We care about your eyes.” This is not just something we plucked out of the air. It is a statement we like you to take literally because everything we do, we do for our customers.

The expertise we’ve accumulated and our attention to research and development - hi-index materials advanced grinding and coating technologies, functional spectacle lens designs - are our guarantee for “value-added” spectacle lenses, which not only correct eyesight but also offer a natural field of vision and maximum comfort.

How are HOYA’s free-form lenses different than other lens manufacturers?

Hoya Free Form incorporates both free form design and lens manufacturing elements. The design is called Double Integrated Surface Technology. The two major components of the progressive design are separated and designed individually to address the specific needs of the wearer Rx and frame parameters.

The vertical component of the design is digitally-surfaced (or molded in the case of iD Lifestyle) on to the front surface of the lens and the horizontal component is digitally-surfaced on the back.

There is no other lens that uses this approach where the design is separated into these two elements and then distributes them separately to the front and back surface of the lens.

What are your free-form lenses?

We have two progressive lens products that use Integrated Double Surface Technology: HOYALUX iD and HOYALUX iD LifeStyle (HOYALUX iD LifeStyle cd).

HOYALUX iD is surfaces on both the front and back while HOYALUX iD LifeStyle has a standardized front surface. Both are available in a range of materials and anti-reflective coatings for any patient’s needs

HOYA also has a free-form single vision lens ~ Nulux ep. Nulux ep is HOYA’s bi-aspheric single vision lens design made possible through HOYA Free-Form Design Technology. Nulux ep delivers:

  • Clear vision from edge to edge

  • Calculated visual acuity at every point on the lens

  • Visual optimization for all powers

How are HOYA’s anti-reflective coatings different?

Thanks to HOYA’s technology our AR coatings offer advantages other AR lenses can’t. HOYA’s Super HiVision offers superior scratch resistance, smudge resistance, and maximum anti-reflective performance.

We also exclusively include Substrate Matching Properties. This means we match the index of refraction of the coating with the lens materials. This way each lens material has a specific coating formulation and provides a customized fit. This process delivers superior chemical and heat resistance and improved lens clarity.
